well, maybe not fat. But liars for sure.

What you have there is the circumference of the event horizon. They have snapped a photo of the corona and said, "here's the sun".

At the same time: pretty darned amazing, isn't it? - JamesJM

Well I've following this for a while and for a long time the active scientists themselves have said in print that what you get is a picture of the accretion disk, with the black hole itself you just get the shadow caused by the event horizon. But yeah that's what you get when you take a picture of a black hole. A shadow surrounded by a glowing accretion disk.

And it's even more amazing than that. You follow the real story closer and it gets more strange.

This is a good vid.
